Known as 'Vegetable Oyster' this root tastes remarkably like oysters. Creamy white roots are 8 to 9 inches long and 1 to 1-1/2 inches across at the shoulder. Excellent when peeled, sliced and boiled or fried, and served in sauces or soups. Requires a long season, but can either be dug and stored in the fall or left in the ground all winter and harvested as needed. Easy to grow, salsify does best in loose, sandy soil. Very delicious and highly nutritious.
